Judge Sullivan hears Flynn Case. Flynn’s Lawyer says she met with Trump and discussed Pardon!
by Glenn Kirschner, …for Justice Matters
[ Editor’s Note: This story got swallowed up in the election news, and maybe on purpose for a number of major outlets. Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell spent hours trying to convince Judge Sullivan that Flynn had gotten no special treatment via Trump’s ringer at the Justice Department, Attorney General Robert Barr.
When reviewing this a few days later, I discovered I had missed something. Sullivan had let the hearing drag out for five hours, so he could have a bigger court record of Ms. Powell doing triple flips and full turns in the air, as she attempted the impossible, trying to sell Sullivan that Flynn had gotten no special treatment.
Sullivan created a long fact filled case file for an Appeals Court to review.
But the fun part came when Powell had to own up to having gone to the White House just a few days before the hearing to brief Trump on how the case was going.
When Sullivan popped the question at just the right time, she was stunned, her wheels turning as she contemplated lying and saying no, and then taking her chances at catching a federal charge for giving false testimony.
She was smart. After a desperate attempt at claiming executive privilege, which she did not have, not being a member of the administration, she fessed up, even admitting that a pardon had been discussed.
Glenn loves to keep pointing out that the Trump team continues to lose its cases, including release of his taxes in New York. The last Appeal’s court hearing had the judges suggesting that the District Attorney could go over to the accountant’s office to get the files, as Trump’s lawyers really had no credible defense… Jim W.
